If only Stoner had had this amount of support from Ducati.He would have won 4 titles for them.Instead,they gave him a bike at the start of each season and told him to get on with it!
Still won 23 races for them though!

Are you seriously trying to convince the world that Rossi has only recieved a new frame in 18 months!!!!!!!!!!!
Stop it mate, ribs are hurting from the laughter!
How totally deluded are you?
Millions have been spent on that bike since the development God took over and what has been achieved?
3 podiums in 2 years!
Dismal failure.But its all Ducatis fault right?
Oh,that is till he got a podim on Sunday,then it was all down to his development skills!

@the truth hurts

your obviousy havent been reading a lot lately, Rossi and burgess were complaining when honda bought a new frame to a race and ducati bought nothing ..

then honda bought a new bike and ducati bought nothing...and rossi et al complained again

its bitter sweet that finally ducati are playing ball and giving the parts that are requested ...maybe Audis intervention ?

i hope Rossi gets a win or 2 before the seasons out

Ducati is now arriving with material!! Its good to see that and its good that Rossi like the feelings.. We will see how the chassi that he enjoy and the new swing arm will be together at Aragon, all hope he can make a good setup again just to shat up some guys here.. Ducati know how importante is Rossi and reliable is feedback is reliable because when he says it worcks he prove that on Wet and now him dry.. Good worck Ducati this way you guys will build a proper bike and your Future will be better..

its nice to see positive steps being taken. one of my bikes is a 1098 and I love it so i'm a ducati fan for sure. which makes it all the more disappointing when they have only made 2 new frames in two years vs Hondas 3 frames in one season. but at any rate rather than focusing on negatives its nice to see the chance for more competitive racing in the future.

Evel ken,you seem to be missing my point.The Rossi brigade constantly lay the blame for his failure at Ducati at the feet of Ducati themselves for not providing new requested parts.Yet,what new parts did Stoner get?
More money has been thrown at Rossis bike in the last 2 seasons than was spent on Stoners in the 4 years he was there.Yet,Stoner got that bike to the top of the podium 23 times.Not to mention all the other podium positions.Surely the man constantly being hailed as the greatest of all time should be able to achieve at least one victory in 2 years!
People say Stoner made excuses when he lost.Rossi has done nothing BUT lose since he has been there.

@The Truth Hurts the truth does hurt doesn't it? He disnt win championships & and he got te same amount of support as Valenhas had. Not much improvement until they both say they'll move on.

You are clearly someone that has only been watching MotoGP for a couple of years, you know nothing!

@ there there now

You clearly can't see the big picture can you, stoner went to Ducati and on to a bike that had far superior bike in terms of speed and tyre so winning on that was easier than winning on todays duc.
Second of all the other manufactures have moved on loads and have been doing right from stoners second season hence stoners winning ways became less and less
The lack of development from Ducati when stoner was there was proberbly due to his poor feedback and lack of communication skills, take note who does development at Honda! It ain't casey is it??
So I'm summery stoners time at duc can't be compared to rossis although I wouldn't bet against him taking odd win this years duc.

Why the flurry in frames and production?
Why was everyone at pigati sleeping earlier?

Did Audi bosses whoop some a$$es?

The smile on Preziosi's face after the race was sickening. He looked so proud.
Proud of what, delayed designs for a year and a half.

I bet they have brought someone better who is working behind-the-scenes.
